Are You Looking to Become a Cloud Expert?

Cloud computing is one of the biggest technology revolution in the IT industry spreading at the speed of light all over the world. More and more business companies are looking for ways to migrate their applications into the cloud or to build new web-scale applications from scratch atop a cloud infrastructure.

The demand for more skilled people in the area of cloud computing is increasing every day across multiple industries. Starting from IT Expert, DevOps Engineers, Developers, Consultants, Security Experts and more.

This course is part of a larger training program called "Becoming a Cloud Expert" and it is the first important cornerstone for learning how to migrate applications into the cloud while using the Infrastructure As a Service model inside Microsoft Azure. We will learn how to create, set up and manage virtual networks, private/public IPs, storage accounts, virtual machines, virtual disks, security rules, access control and much more.

Section 1 : Getting Started

  • Lecture 1 :
  • Welcome and thanks for joining! this training program "Becoming a Cloud Expert".
  • Lecture 2 :
  • Course Objectives and Structure
  • Before we start lets' quickly review the course main learning objectives and high-level structure.

Section 2 : Introduction to Microsoft Azure

  • Lecture 1 :
  • Section Overview
  • Topics Cloud computing definition Microsoft Azure Cloud Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Global footprint Azure Portal Overview Azure Resource Manager (ARM) Azure RBAC
  • Lecture 2 :
  • Cloud Computing Definition
  • Cloud Computing is the transformation of computer hardware, software and networks into a utility service just like electric, water or gas services. Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources, that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
  • Lecture 3 :
  • Microsoft Azure Cloud
  • Microsoft Azure provides the services to build, manage and deploy applications on a global scale while using multiple data centers connected with a super fast network. The all hardware and software orchestration of the cloud infrastructure is done using a specialized cloud operating system, called “Microsoft Azure” developed by Microsoft.
  • Lecture 4 :
  • Global Footprint
  • The cloud services are supposed to be available on a global scale and this is one of the most impressive things about a public cloud provider, like Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, or Google cloud. Those players are building and running a huge global infrastructure and every year they announce on additional regions.
  • Lecture 5 :
  • Demo - Azure Portal Overview
  • Let's review the Azure web portal at a high level.
  • Lecture 6 :
  • Azure Resource Manager (ARM)
  • As part of the management layer of Azure, there is a central component that is called Azure Resource Manager, or in short ARM. The azure resource manager is used to allocate and deploy resources, organize resources into groups, control access to resources and much more.
  • Lecture 7 :
  • Demo - Azure ARM
  • Let's review the Azure ARM inside Microsoft Azure - resources, resource groups, resource providers, accounts and subscriptions and deployment templates.
  • Lecture 8 :
  • Azure Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)
  • Access management for resources is a critical function for any group of users or an organization that is using the Azure cloud.  As administrators, the Role-based access control (RBAC) will be used to manage who has access to Azure resources and what they can do with those resources.
  • Lecture 9 :
  • Demo - Azure RBAC
  • Let's create new users and assign them access to specific entities.

Section 3 : Azure IaaS - Networking

  • Lecture 1 :
  • Section Overview
  • Topics What is Virtual Network? Virtual network setting IP Address Types VM, NICs and IP Configuration Azure Network Security Traffic filtering with security rules Network Security Group (NSG) Application Security Group (ASG)
  • Lecture 2 :
  • What is a Virtual Network?
  • A virtual network is basically a private isolated connectivity layer being used to connect between a group of cloud resources.
  • Lecture 3 :
  • Virtual Network Setting
  • In azure a virtual network is a managed entity that users are creating with a group of setting that is configured during the creation process or added later when the virtual network entity is already created.
  • Lecture 4 :
  • Demo - Creating a Virtual Network (VNet)
  • Let's review the all process end-to-end for creating virtual network and subnets.
  • Lecture 5 :
  • IP Address Types
  • As soon as we have a new virtual network, we can create VMs as resources inside that virtual network or inside a specific subnet. Each resource must be assigned with at least one private IP address from the virtual network address range we allocated to the virtual network. In addition, if we want a resource inside the virtual network to access the outside internet than we will need to use also a public IP address.
  • Lecture 6 :
  • VM, NICs and IP Configuration
  • We have an IP address, that can be public or private created dynamically or with a static configuration. In Azure, we have a virtual machine, network interfaces and IP configuration profiles. Let’s see how those building blocks are connected and what kind of combination we can create.
  • Lecture 7 :
  • Demo - Network Interfaces and IP Configuration
  • Let's review how to create network interfaces, attach them to VMs and create or adjust IP configuration.
  • Lecture 8 :
  • Network Security Group (NSG)
  • All public cloud providers provide an ability to filter traffic and I am planning to present how it is being done in Microsoft Azure. In Microsoft Azure, we can filter network traffic to and from resources in a virtual network with an entity that is called a network security group.
  • Lecture 9 :
  • Application Security Group (ASG)
  • Another useful option in Azure related to traffic filtering is using application security groups. The focus is moving to the function of the applications. We can group VMs based on their function.
  • Lecture 10 :
  • Demo - Configuring NSG and ASG
  • Let's review how to configure NSG and ASG.
